Module
Description
(200 words max)
Mechanical systems in motion present a range of engineering
problems associated with movement. Individual components
may have undesirable dynamic characteristics - i.e. vibration.
Mechanisms - systems of components can have complex
motion and the control of these systems by means of feedback
Module Learning
Outcomes
On successful completion of the module, students will be able
to:
1. Show in depth understanding and ability to evaluate the
Kinematics and Dynamics in the component
2. Show in depth understanding and ability to evaluate the
Vibration
3. Critically evaluate the theory of Kinematics, Dynamics and
Vibration

Module Content

Module Learning
and Teaching
Methods
Learning & Teaching Methods (as defined in the QAA
indicative list  See Guidance Notes):

The teaching and learning strategy will be based on lecture
and demonstration work, with tutorial work to help develop an
understanding of Dynamics and Vibration behaviour. Use will
be made of models, diagrams and simple experiments. Real
construction scenarios will be drawn on to provide the
frequency occurs on the components being investigated. The
practical application of analysis will be emphasised, and how it
relates to design and mechanical engineering industries.

Lectures 24 hours

Assessment

Method
Formative Assessment (0%):
A number of activities will be identified and used as a form of
evaluating the level of students learning and thereby provide
formative feedback to individual students on areas of
weakness as well as strength. These activities will be based on
the indicative content and will take place within set time.

Summative Assessment (100%):
CW: 60% Weighting: Learning outcomes 1 and 2 to be
assessed
Students will be expected to produce a report of approx
2500 words based on an illustrated case study.

EX: 40% Weighting: Learning outcomes 3 to be assessed.
Students will be expected to take an examination,
lasting for 2.5 hrs, covering of Kinematics, Dynamics
and Vibration.
